Welcome

We are a father/sons trial team specializing in complex business and employment litigation for businesses and individuals in Central California. We are a Martindale-Hubbell AV® Pre-Eminent Peer Review Rated law firm. Walt has practiced law in California for 31 years; Brian for 5 years.

We pride ourselves in being skilled oral and written advocates for our clients who range from multi-national corporations to local companies and individuals.  Unlike other civil litigation specialists who call themselves “litigators,” we are trial attorneys who are experienced at trial work (Walt has over 75 cases to verdict or judgment in state and federal courts) and who look forward to going to trial when an opponent takes an unreasonable approach to settlement.  Civil trials are stressful, risky, and expensive.  It is our job to manage the stress, minimize the risk, handle the case as economically as possible … and to win.  If you are looking for Fresno Employment Law Attorneys or Fresno Business Litigation Attorneys, you have come to the right place.

The firm supports medical research for Fibrodysplasia Ossificans Progressiva (FOP), a condition Vincent Whelan (Walt’s son and Lucas and Brian’s brother) has. For more information, see the International FOP Association website at: www.ifopa.org.
